A Detroit woman was arrested Wednesday for allegedly threatening her teenage brother at knifepoint, then later threatening to have someone cut off his fingers and blow up his family’s home.

Natasha McCary-Edwards, 20, was charged with threat of domestic violence and aggravated menacing.

Sandusky police went to the 17-year-old boy’s home in the 400 block of W. Jefferson St. at about 8 p.m. in response to a domestic dispute.

McCary-Edwards and the teen had been sitting on the couch when she allegedly threatened to get a knife and slit his throat if he touched her again, a police report said. The boy responded by poking her, prompting McCary-Edwards to head to the kitchen.

The boy followed behind her and grabbed a hammer to defend himself, but the confrontation fizzled out.

Another woman in the home, however, told police McCary-Edwards already held a knife to the boy’s head during an argument earlier in the day, the report said.

Police arrested McCary-Edwards and took her to the police station, although that wasn’t the end of things.

McCary-Edwards used a phone in a holding cell to call the boy, warning him her boyfriend was en route from Detroit with some friends to “cut off fingers, cut off heads, and blow up the house” the report said.

The boyfriend then called the teen and said he was an hour away and did not care if there were children in the home, the report said.

Officers kept an eye on the residence for the rest of the night. The Detroit men never showed, the report said. McCary-Edwards was later taken to the county jail.

So much compassion in this world

mimi's word

Who are we supposed to have compassion for? The ignorant woman who was going to slit her brother's throat? The brother who was just being a brother by aggravating his sister but should have learned by now not to poke a ghetto bear? Or the boyfriend, who was going to cut off fingers, heads and blow up house over sibling aggravation????

It was a flippant remark. I was referring to his sister, and even her boyfriend played along with the threats. The part that got me is when the boyfriend said he didn't care if kids were in the house. This world is full of crazies!

mimi's word

I really think we should be open the death penalty to more than just murderers. I say anyone that has decisded to be a drain rather than a positive force in soceity has lost his ticket to ride.

Is the weave part of the story in the hard copy of the register cause I don't see it in this online article?

I think this article is missing a lot of facts, nowhere in the article did I read where her brother kept pulling her hair from every direction either. Can't we get some towels from huron county ?
